Title:
Tailings Pile, Ely Mine
Town:
Vershire
County:
Orange
State:
Vermont
Date:
1860 - 1900
Description:
This historic photograph documents a large spoil bank at the Ely Mine in Vershire, Vermont. In the foreground are numerous spoil banks of sediment and mine tailings that appear to have been deposited down the hillside. Among the mine waste piles, some shrubs and deciduous species appear to be reforesting this section of the slope; however on the hillside adjacent to the spoil banks, the area appears partially forested. Time and climate has caused rill and gully erosion in the spoil bank deposits. Running up the central pile of tailings is an earthen road. season spring
